The first floppy is made in three part: BOOT (mountable, not compressed
ext2fs) and, following him, the ROOT.gz and USR.bz2 images.

USR.bz2 is compressed with bzip2 (this command is in ROOT.gz) and is
mounted in /usr: this is the good place for your commands, because
it is highly compressed. Move smbd and nmbd in /usr/bin
and /usr/local/etc/samba in /etc.

Remove sound module and sound commands from floppy #1, etc, is a
good starting point.

Please do not send in my mailbox! I have a slow modem link. I can download
from Karl-Heinz german site.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
